Here is an interesting course:
"In this course students will analyzes various styles of animation: from the animation of shadow puppets to Czech masters of puppet cinema; from two-dimensional slapstick styles of comedy (Warner Brothers, Looney Tunes, Tex Avery, Hanna Barbara, etc.) to the multiplane camera, which enables depth of scene and psychology in family drama (Disney); from abstract experimental art to the virtual reality of CGI; from German expressionism to Japanese anime; from animatronics and automata to the stunning arts of claymation (my personal favorite!). "
See the document for more information on the course and how to contact Prof. Blackford with any questions regarding this course.
